Perfect Mother's Day Gifts

Looking for the Perfect Gift for Mother's Day?

There should be more than one day in the year when we show appreciation to our mother. Yet, we have one Holiday when we can really take a step back, think about the love and support given to us, and show appreciation back.

Here are my best sponsored picks of gifts for Mother's Day! I feel that gifts toward a loved one need to reflect on the love and care toward that person. The next gifts are built on this idea.

1. Put sentiments into a gift!
Show your appreciation by collecting family memories and making a gift of it. You can create a picture book, a calendar, or a card, capturing the moments you have shared with your mother. As you grow and develop as a person, and especially as you start your own family, your mother will appreciate the collection of these memories more. A gift like this one will also help an older person who may like to keep the memories of her family moments but my be feeling uncomfortable with technology. Capturing family moments and presenting them as a gift can be the perfect Mother's day gift.

Picaboo Classic Custom Photo Books and  Picaboo Photo Books provide an easy way to do that.

2. Show Your Love With Chocolate!
What if you could give a gift of something delicious but at the same time know that you are helping people in less developed countries?
Here is a program that I love because it does exactly this. It gives you an opportunity to make a gift to a loved one while supporting women in countries where they need more support.


Equal Exchange provides coffee, tea, cocoa, and chocolate products. The products are all grown by local farmers in the countries these products grow.
Through this program, you can get locally grown teas from India, locally grown coffee from Guatemala and the Democratic Republic of Congo. This co-op is also expanding their product line by offering products such as olive oil from the West Bank and cashews from El Salvador.

The idea behind the company is trading  coffee and other products in a fair way that supports both farmers and consumers. Their site provides wonderful background of the products they offer. 
You would know that you are buying directly from somebody working hard and somebody who may be less fortunate than we are. You would also know that you will be purchasing products that are organic and locally grown. The company provides gift baskets as well as individual products. You can enjoy coffee, cocoa, and chocolate. They have a service where you mom can get coffee delivered regularly to her doorstep. If your mother enjoys baking, Equal Exchange provides recipes using some of their products. You can also give the gift of what every woman loves!  Chocolate!


3. Give experiences as a gift!
Craftsy Memories are made after experiences!  Instead of buying a material gift for youe mother, you can give her a certificate for a class to learn a specific craft, cooking, photography, learning a musical instrument, etc. All of us are interested in starting different hobbies and trying new things.  Often we don't follow through with our own wishes as life gets busy.

Providing an experience as a gift can be a great way of expressing your appreciation but also gently guiding your mother to enrich her life by experiencing new things. This may also be a great idea if you are looking for gifts for your wife. Craftsy online classes may be a good place to start looking for affordable, fun classes, focusing on cooking and different crafts. They are also running a 50% discount worth checking out!

4. Be There!
Your presence will be more important than any gift. Spend time with your mother. This will trully be the  most perfect gift for her! 

5. Show appreciation!
This is going to be the shortest but the most important part of this posts! We, as women do so much. We all make mistakes and yet we give all we have for our children. We hope that down the road our children will forget the mistakes, remember the lessons, and show appreciation!

A simple card or a phone call expressing your appreciation towards your mother is the best gift she can get!

I am a HUGE fan of the giving experiences rule. My hubby and I don't give gifts, and instead, we do things like spend a day at the spa, or go on trips. Instead of Christmas presents each year, we spend the holidays on the beach together in Mexico.

THOSE are the things you will cherish forever...not a sweater you got from J. Crew, (although I do like their sweaters too.) :-)

To add to the list, personalized gifts are always sentimental and very emotional to give, especially to Mom

I love chocolates! And that project you mentioned above sounds really interesting and I'm sure it's gonna be a big help to so many women. I also love the fact that they produce local and organic products :)

Maria, it's so good to see you at Countdown in Style! These are definitely wonderful gift ideas. I enjoy chocolate and feeling appreciate myself. :)

As a stay at home mom, everyone being there just feels like another day! I'd rather have the house to myself and be able to sleep without interruption and eat without someone asking "Can I have some?" I do love the other ideas though, espeically the chocolate! Thanks for sharing with Countdown in Style!
